There was a lot of horsing around going on last weekend at the Grady County Fairgrounds, but it wasn’t all fun and games.

Competition was tough as hundreds of high school and junior high school athletes from several states, along with their horses, packed the event center and indoor arena for the third leg of the Oklahoma High School Rodeo Association’s Spring Schedule. It was also the third leg for the Oklahoma Junior High School Rodeo Association.

In addition to Oklahoma, athletes from New Mexico, South Dakota, Texas and Arkansas traveled to Chickasha for the high school competition. They are all competing for points, as the association will return to Chickasha for State Finals in about six weeks, June 2-6. In between, the high school group will compete in Weatherford the weekend of May 1-2.

The junior high association will compete in Thomas the weekend of May 1-2 and then return to Chickasha for the State Finals May 20-23. The Grady County Fairgrounds venue was able to accommodate both the junior high and high school competitions this past weekend by utilizing the event center and indoor arena for designated events.
